Setting the right budget

How much should you expect to pay?

We know it's difficult to estimate how much a project will cost, that's why we've surveyed our tradesmen to give you an idea of how much you should expect to pay for specific jobs. Tradesmen all across the country have contributed to the cost guides, so the costs you see are an approximate national average.

Appliance installation £50 £100 £75 £150

Installing a new appliance, such as a washing machine, washer-dryer, dishwasher or dryer is very much bread and butter work for your plumber. If you have not had a similar appliance before, or if you are moving appliances, then your tradesman will have to plumb it into the water supply and hook it up to an outlet for drainage.

They will then run the machine to make sure that it works. Where you are replacing an old appliance then your plumber will simply hook the new appliance up to the existing set up, replacing any hoses or pipes as necessary. They may also take away any old appliances (always check this first). Many appliance retailers offer this install and take away service as a part of their after-sales service nowadays.
